Artist Statement

Dunn creates large-scale, highly detailed, multimedia drawings; as well as loose energetic still lives and landscapes. She utilizes these drawings and paintings as backgrounds for stop-motion animations, synchronizing her own digital recordings with wire puppets.

Dunn recently completed “Rapture’s Adagio, 00:11:01.” Based on Piero Camporesi essay “The Prodigious Manna, ” the stop-motion animation follows Sister Chiara of Montefalco and the collective hallucinations she inspired. “Rapture’s Adagio,” divided into the four trials of Chiara’s life, culminates in the astounding ritualistic operations performed by her sect sisters post-mortem.
